Milsom Hotels was delighted to read that Geraldine Milsom has reached the finals in the Hotel Design Brit List Awards 2017.
Geraldine is in overall charge of all the design throughout the group, from the bedrooms, bars and restaurants to the marquee at Le Talbooth and the many private dining spaces. And yes, the fabulous colours and plantings in the gardens and terraces are all her ideas too. Geraldine is definitely our ‘design director’ and it’s due to her hard work and vision that all the hotels and restaurants always look so great and receive so many accolades from our guests.
Over the last few years, Geraldine has overseen the major reinvestments at The Pier at Harwich, Milsoms in Dedham, Le Talbooth and the launch of The Hangar as East Anglia’s most exciting new event venue.
Here’s what the HD Awards say in their profile of Geraldine:
GERALDINE MILSOM – MILSOM HOTELS AND RESTAURANTS GROUP
The history of the Milsom group can be traced back almost seven decades, which has seen the group grow into one of the premium providers of accommodation and restaurant experiences in the Essex and Suffolk area. Geraldine and Paul Milsom opened Milsoms in 2001, and having undergone a refurbishment in 2015, the property has gone from strength to strength.
As someone who could appear in either side of the Brit List, the design of the refurbishment was led by Geraldine herself, which ensured the history and aesthetics of the building were retained, all while injecting a vibrant look for the future of the property.
